As stated in title, I swapped in a new steering rack and pump, and when I start my car up now, the airbag fault light comes one. It does one flash, then stays on. I dont know if thats coding for something. I tried resetting the ecu by tapping the battery leads together, no dice. Ideas?

If you powered up the electrical system with the airbag disconnected, it'll set an error state that you'll have to reset. Try a scan tool, I'm not sure how effective the capacitive discharge you did is.

Or, you may have damaged the wiring or clockspring.
